QUETTA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has high hopes from his rally scheduled in Quetta on Friday despite the continual rainfalls in different parts of the province.

Speaking to the media in Quetta, Khan said that during the rally today, the PTI leadership will explain “how to normalise the situation in Balochistan.”

When asked about the unpredictable downpour, an enthusiastic Khan said that the leadership will “thank Allah for the rainfall.”

“We will, for sure, get drenched and will do that in front of the rally.”

Khan said that he was happy that the people of Balochistan were planning on taking part in the rally and that “no other political party had dared to gather such a crowd.”

The rally which was initially planned at the Ayub Stadium which has a capacity of roughly 100,000 people was shifted to an adjacent ground at Quetta’s hockey stadium due to muddy conditions.

The new venue has a capacity between 60,000 and 70,000 people and organisers are mulling over plans to extend it by removing a back wall.

For the past few months, the party’s leadership has been engaged in and around Quetta trying their utmost to attract the Nawabs, Sardars, nationalist and religious leaders in preparation for their upcoming gathering in the city.

So far, PTI has only mustered former Capital City Police officer Humayun Jogezai and a few tribal elders from Kuchlak, near Quetta, from Balochistan.
